Sunshine brings out beachgoers in the Shuswap

Spring is here so bring on the beach, it’s never to early for a swim

The sun was shining and residents of the Shuswap weren’t passing up the opportunity to head to the beach after what felt like a never-ending winter.

Four beach goers braved the icy waters of Mara Lake as outdoor temperatures reached 25 C on Wednesday.

While some might think it’s too early in the season for a dip, these folks weren’t wasting any time in getting a little vitamin D.

They even brought a swimming floatie to try out the water but doesn’t appear they used it.

Environment Canada is forecasting another clear sunny day on Friday with temperatures up around 26 C for the Okanagan and Shuswap.

If you’ve been enjoying the warm temperatures during this long awaited spring let us know and send a photo of yourself and your family in the outdoors.
